    How do I get Dolby Digital and DTS through the Pioneer AX5Ai's I-link input from my Pioneer 868?

    Thanks, M.J.

    Thanks! And then, do I just select the Dolby Digital or DTS option on the DVD disc menu itself and it will automatically output the Dolby Digital or DTS sound through my speaker set-up?

    Is the I-Link the BEST sound from this combo? Thanks again. :thumbsup:

    Your amp uses the I-link input as a purely audio function by default. What you should do is go to your amplifier menu and select "function assign" (or something like that, I have a bad memory). Under that menu you will have an I-link option. Select that and scroll trough the options until you see dvd/ld and press enter.
    This way will also free up your optical input associated with dvd/ld for some other source. If you don't do this you will hear the sound with no picutres (unless the press vid sel repeatedly).

    Just be aware that if the 868 is anything like the 757 in set up, that you'll need to tell the 868 to output via multichannel outputs, even though you're only using the single i-link.

    So, in essence, I need to pretend that I'm using the six multichannel outputs. What do i do re speaker set-up for those?

    Precisely, but don't worry about setting speaker distances/levels etc in the 868, they'll all be bypassed and leave the AX5i to do it's thing.
